LIMERICK Youth Service is currently enrolling for the Leaving Cert Applied, an academic, practical and career oriented programme focusing on the talents of each student. 

A two-year full time course, the LCA helps students apply the skills they learn in the real world.

Students on the course study a combination of subjects including Art, Communications, Maths, English, Spanish, Graphics and Construction Studies with a key focus on social and personal development. 

Work placement is also a part of the course, which gives students an opportunity to experience employment in areas such as childcare, retail, hairdressing, mechanics, sport and leisure. 

The LCA is delivered at LYS’ Community Training Centre, with small class sizes and a holistic approach allowing students develop and enjoy their experience. 

LYS works with more than 3,000 young people annually to provide a wide range of educational, social, training and personal development programmes.

A number of educational and training courses for young people between the ages of 16 and 21 years are available at LYS Community Training Centre, Lower Glentworth Street. 

The course is open to students between the ages of 16 and 19 who are no longer in school and interested in a new challenge. 

Young people who are interested in enrolling with LYS are asked to contact Noreen Murphy at noreenm@limerickyouthservice.org or at 061-412444 by Friday, May 18. 

The LCA is supported by by Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board and co-funded by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund.
